Situated on a quiet village road, this attractive house completed in 2006, combines comfortable internal accommodation with lovely outdoor living spaces and great views across the valley. Being all on one floor with step-free access throughout it would be ideal for someone with restricted mobility
The village is surrounded by Charentaise forest and fields and is a few minutes from the boundary with the Dordogne so the best of both departments are on the doorstep. Despite being a rural location, it is only ten minutes from the small town of Marthon where there are all basic amenities plus a cinema regularly showing films in their original language
The house is well insulated, has low maintenance shutters on the double glazed doors and windows throughout and has a large log burner in the lounge supplemented by economical electric heating. There is tiled or laminate flooring throughout the house and in detail it comprises:
Entrance hall - 9m2 T shaped and giving access to all rooms plus a separate WC
Kitchen breakfast room - 12m2 with fully fitted units, integrated hob and double oven with 1 and 1/2 bowl sink and connections for a dishwasher
Utility room - 4m2 with sink, connections for washing machine, a large built-in store cupboard and internal access to the garage

Bathroom - 5m2 where there is a bath with fitted shower and screen, WC and washbasin
The integral garage is 21m2 with a concrete floor, an up and over door, power, lighting and a mezzanine storage area plus an access hatch to the roof space
To the front there is a large gravel parking area with ample space for four or five cars, various shrubs and fruit trees and the large garden leads off to the side and rear
The rear raised and balustraded terrace has an electrically operated awning for essential summer shade as it is quite a suntrap and provides a lovely al fresco dining area. There are steps down to a further paved terrace and a gated and fenced plunge pool with sun-deck perfect for a cooling dip in the hot summer months but also with heating to keep you happy in the cooler spring and autumn months
The large garden to the back and side is mainly lawn with some planted areas and is about 3/4 of an acre sloping gently away from the little village road. In the past there was outline permission granted to construct another house in part of the garden which has now expired but could be applied for again
There is a boulangerie, general store and bar restaurant in a neighbouring village five minutes away while there are larger towns with all commercial facilities such as Montbron and Villebois-Lavalette within ten to fifteen minutes drive
The Charente capital of Angouleme is less than 30 minutes drive where you will find all commercial, cultural and leisure attractions, regular festivals and a railway station with local and TGV express services
